Chevrolet Bolt EUV 2023 ACC Override User Guide

ACC Override

If using the accelerator pedal while ACC is active, the ACC indicator turns blue on the instrument cluster indicating ACC braking will not occur. ACC will resume operation when the accelerator pedal is not being pressed.

The ACC will not automatically apply the brakes if your foot is resting on the accelerator pedal. You could crash into a vehicle ahead of you.

Curves in the Road

On curves, ACC may not detect a vehicle ahead in your lane. You could be startled if the vehicle accelerates up to the set speed, especially when following a vehicle exiting or entering exit ramps. You could lose control of the vehicle or crash. Do not use ACC while driving on an entrance or exit ramp. Always be ready to use the brakes if necessary.

On curves, ACC may respond to a vehicle in another lane, or may not have time to react to a vehicle in your lane. You could crash into a vehicle ahead of you, or lose control of your vehicle. Give extra attention in curves and be ready to use the brakes if necessary. Select an appropriate speed while driving in curves.

ACC may operate differently in a sharp curve. It may reduce the vehicle speed if the curve is too sharp. When following a vehicle and entering a curve, ACC may not detect the vehicle ahead and accelerate to the set speed. When this happens, the vehicle ahead indicator will not appear.

ACC may detect a vehicle that is not in your lane and apply the brakes. ACC may occasionally provide an alert and/or braking that is considered unnecessary. It could respond to vehicles in different lanes or stationary objects when entering or exiting a curve. This is normal operation. The vehicle does not need service.

Other Vehicle Lane Changes

ACC will not detect a vehicle ahead until it is completely in the lane. The brakes may need to be manually applied.

Objects Not Directly in Front of Your Vehicle

The detection of objects in front of the vehicle may not be possible if:

  • The vehicle or object ahead is not within your lane.
  • The vehicle ahead is shifted, not centered, or is shifted to one side of the lane.

Driving in Narrow Lanes

Vehicles in adjacent traffic lanes or roadside objects may be incorrectly detected when located along the roadway.

Do Not Use ACC on Hills and When Towing a Trailer

Do not use ACC when driving on steep hills or when towing a trailer. ACC will not detect a vehicle in the lane while driving on steep hills. If the brakes are applied, ACC disengages.

Disengaging ACC

There are four ways to disengage ACC:

  • Step lightly on the brake pedal.
  • Press *.
  • Press 5.
  • Press the Regen On Demand paddle.

Erasing Speed Memory

The ACC set speed is erased from memory if 5 is pressed or if the ignition is turned off.

Weather Conditions Affecting ACC

If the interior temperature is extremely high, the instrument cluster may indicate that ACC is temporarily unavailable. This can be caused by extremely hot weather conditions with direct sunlight on the front camera. ACC will return to normal operation once the cabin temperature is lower.
Conditions that are associated with low visibility, such as fog, rain, snow, or road spray, may limit ACC performance. Water droplets from rain or snow that remain on the windshield may also limit ACC’s ability to detect objects. System operation may be limited under snow, heavy rain, or road spray conditions.

Camera visibility may be limited and the ACC system may not work properly if the windshield is not clear. Do not use ACC if moisture is present on the inside of the windshield or the windshield washer is used in cold weather. Turn on the front defroster and make sure the windshield is clear before using ACC. Before driving, check that the windshield wipers are in good condition and replace them if worn.

Lighting Conditions Affecting ACC  (Not equipped with Super Cruise)

The ACC front camera can be affected by poor lighting conditions, and ACC may have limited performance when:

  • There are changes in brightness, such as entering and exiting tunnels, bridges, and overpasses.
  • Low sun angles cause the camera to not detect objects, or it is more difficult to detect objects in the same traffic lane.
  • Lighting is poor in the evening or early morning.
  • There are multiple changes in brightness or shadows along the vehicle roadway.
  • In a tunnel without the headlamps on, or in a tunnel when there is a vehicle in front that does not have its taillamps on.
  • Subjected to strong light from opposing lane traffic in the front of the vehicle, such as high-beam headlamps from oncoming traffic.

Accessory Installations and Vehicle Modifications

Do not install or place any object around the front camera windshield area that would obstruct the front camera view.
Do not install objects on top of the vehicle that overhangs and obstruct the front camera, such as a canoe, kayak, or other items that can be transported on a roof rack system. Do not modify the hood, headlamps, or fog lamps, as this may limit the camera’s ability to detect an object.

Cleaning the Sensing System

The camera sensor on the windshield behind the rearview mirror can become blocked by snow, ice, dirt, mud, or debris. This area needs to be cleaned for ACC to operate properly. On vehicle(s) with Super Cruise, the radar sensors on the front of the vehicle can also become blocked by snow ice, dirt, mud, or debris. These areas need to be cleaned for ACC to operate properly. The vehicle headlamps may need to be cleaned due to dirt, snow, or ice. Objects that are not illuminated correctly may be difficult to detect. If ACC will not operate, regular cruise control may be available. See “Switching Between ACC and Regular Cruise Control” in this
section. Always consider driving conditions before using either cruise control system. For cleaning instructions, see “Washing the Vehicle” under Exterior Care 0 284.
